English readers of SARIE KOS have never stopped asking for a translation of the very popular and multi-award-winning food magazine so this month, their dream becomes a reality as SARIE FOOD, which will also be published six times a year, goes on sale.
“When we started SARIE KOS in 2007 we never envisioned an English version”, says SARIE’s editor, Michélle van Breda. “The special SARIE FOOD edition which we published last year featured a collection of 119 SARIE KOS favourites. It was hugely successful with readers and awarded a PICA for Best Annual magazine, prompting the idea to publish SARIE FOOD, a translated version of every issue of SARIE KOS. English-speaking food-lovers can now look forward to a taste of modern-day Afrikaans cooking and entertaining in every issue. The mantra of SARIE KOS has always been that the magazine talks food and the conversation is absolutely mouth-watering. Readers will be in for a treat – with dishes straight from the heart”.
The mouth-watering feast of food photography and recipes is divided into five categories: Fine Food, Home Food, Dream Food, Health Food and Our Food. According to Barbara Joubert, SARIE KOS’ award-winning food editor, her grandma’s delicious home cooking was the inspiration behind this issue. Grandma’s food turns trendy with new recipes and readers can enjoy some new takes like bredies with a twist, milk tart with chocolate, malvapudding and pears and samoosas filled with snoek. Add the 30 muffins (15 sweet & 15 savoury), meat-free pies, Fête pudding for diabetics and gluten-free rusks and you are in for a real treat.
